Suspension of EU import duties on Ukrainian exports set for fast-track approval

Yesterday, the International Trade Committee gave their green light for a one-year suspension of all EU import duties on Ukrainian exports to support the country’s economy.

MEPs in the International Trade Committee approved a proposal of the temporary trade liberalisation of Ukrainian products, in the wake of Russia’s war of aggression that is hampering Ukraine’s ability to trade with the rest of the world. The measures adopted include the full removal of import duties on industrial products, of entry duties on fruit and vegetables, and of anti-dumping duties and safeguard measures on steel imports for a period of one year.

The committee’s draft report, prepared by standing rapporteur for Ukraine Sandra Kalniete (EPP, LV) was adopted by 38 votes, with one against and three abstentions.
